    As I'm not going be around for the chat tonight, can someone ask Anchor Bay what's going on with their "Wim Wenders Collection"? I've heard conflicting reports that they now have bought the rights to both Paris Texas (a Fox title) and Wings of Desire (an Orion title controlled by MGM) and, as I'm dying to see these on DVD, am curious if this is the case.
    Someone give them props for The Wicker Man and Suspiria for me. These (almost) make me forget about the Manhunter LE fiasco!

    I know they were pursuing grabbing "Paris, Texas", "The Buena Vista Social Club", "The Million Dollar Hotel", and "Wings of Desire", but I haven't heard if they were successful. "Chamber 666", "The Scarlet Letter", "The American Friend", "The Goalkeeper's Fear of the Penalty", "Lightning Over Water", "The State of Things", and "Tokyo-Ga" are all coming soon, though.

    I can't believe people were clamoring for "Hawk the Slayer" and "Rad" (?!?) and no one asked about either "Paris Texas" or "Wings of Desire." ACK!

    I could not make the chat last night which was very upsetting as I wanted to ask about one of my favorite Wender films, Alice in the Cities.
    In fact all of the films I wanted to ask about,(except for Charly), were not mentioned [​IMG]
